FRESHMAN YEAR 

September 5, 1946— 
Dear Diary, 

Today, we the class ol [950— seems like a long way off— have been duly 
initiated into the membership ol Weymouth High School. Taking an inven- 
tory, we found ourselves with stacks of books, a precious program card (issued 
with warning not to lose it and to copy it correctly— or we'd be sorry) plus 
pencils, pens, and rulers. The latter became handy later as offensive and 
defensive weapons! 

The first day is over and it's time to settle down to opening up the covers 
ol those books. 
September 21, 1946- 
Dear Diary, 

It's Friday. At least that's what the calendar said. However, in school it 
was Monday, with the program running backwards— just to confuse us fresh- 
men a little more, il that was possible. A little kindness was shown us 
however; the clocks were running as usual. The upper classmen seemed to 
understand all these mysterious changes. Possibly in three years, we shall, too. 

The purpose of all this contusion was to present a program in the audi- 
torium, where Mr. Whittle, our principal, extended us a hearty welcome 
and best wishes for a happy lour years. 
September 25, 1946— 
Dear Diary, 

The "Aggie" boys took the day off to go down to Mr. Kress's farm to 
learn how to sort and pack tomatoes today. They learned how to pack a 
basket ol grade-A tomatoes out of a pile of grade-C's by facing the best side 
out and adding a little bit of cellophane. From all reports it seems as if they 
had a very good time. There'll be many good farmers in the future, especially 
from Weymouth High School. 
September 28, 1946- 
Dear Diary, 

We had a football rally this afternoon. The football team was introduced, 
along with the cheerleaders and the coaches. High school is really becoming 
interesting! 
September 29, 1946- 
Dear Diary, 

Miss Nye is in England. Miss Flaherty has very ably taken over her work 
in the Guidance Office. 
October 2, 1946- 
Dear Diary, 

being freshmen has at least some good points! We go to lunch first, just 
think of those poor unfortunate juniors and seniors who have to wait until 
the third lunch period before they can enjoy that pleasure. 

We also have another advantage; we go down to the auditorium first when- 
ever there is an assembly. Maybe it would be better to remain a lower class- 
man—we probably shall, anyhow. 
October 17, 1946- 
Dear Diary, 

Today was "Dungaree Day." It seemed strange to see everyone wearing 
dungarees, especially in school. But, my, did it bring back those old summer 
memories! Why don't they pass a new law— "Dungaree Day" every day? 

November 10, 1946- 
Dear Diary, 

We were late lor school this morning. It was evident that those Lovell 
buses would break dcrwn sooner or later. Miss Vining was presenting one of 
her famous Latin tests the first period. Wasn't it too bad so many didn't 
arrive until the second period?

Januar) 3, 1947— 
Dear Diary, 

The second hall oJ the school year began today. Although it is a new year, 
we are still freshmen; howe ver, now we have much more "hep" than last 
September. What a wonderful Christmas vacation we spent! There was 
]>leni\ <>l snow for many outdoor spoils. 

March 12. 1947- 
Dear Diary, 

The Spring Concert was tonight. What a superb job Mr. jack docs with 
the Band, Choir, and Orchestra! And even some ol our freshmen participated. 
We are really getting into things now. 

April 25, 1947- 
Dear Diary, 

We had a special communication from the "Aggie" boys in Vermont. It 
read something like this: "We have to work fifteen hours a da\ up here and 
for jusi one ol Uncle Sam's greenbacks a day. Oh. well, it has iis compen- 
sations! You should see the pretty girls up here!" 

May 21, 1947— 
Dear Dial \ , 

The band. Choir, and Orchestra left lor Hampton beach. N IL. today. 
Oh, those luck) people! They'll be home tomorrow night. Mr. Jack is going 
lo have main new members in his musical groups next year— as the rumor 
goes, anyhow. 

June 21. 1947- 
Dear Diary, 

At last the end of school lor two whole months! It doesn't seem possible 
that we shall be sophomores next year (maybe we shan't be -who knows)? 
Our class is finally getting established. Many ol its members have made the 
basketball, football, and baseball teams, and even more have been elected 
to the Stude nt Council and Reflet tor Staff. 

What a wonderful class we have! Don't you think so, "Dear Diary?" 

SOPHOMORE YEAR 

September (i. 1 947— 
Dear Diary, 

Once more we are back in school. Surprising enough, it seems good to get 
back. Everyone was exchanging news and gossip about his summer vacation. 

Those summer resorts certainly sound interesting! The "Aggie" boys are 
back from their summer on the Vermont farm; they're not much wealthier 
lint certainly healthier, il one can judge from those new muscles in their 
arms and that gleam in their eyes. We now have a new addition to our class 

(and what an addition!) the Trade School freshmen. They have only three 
years ol school so although they are only freshmen, they will graduate with us. 

October 5, 1!)47- 
Dear Diary, 

We had our usual reverse program today, but being sophomores now, we 
understand such minor changes. At an assembly, Miss Gill, our exchange 
teacher from England, gave an interesting lecture on customs in English 

schools. 

November 12. 1947- 
Dear Diary, 

My, but those "Aggie'' boys are lucky! The Wirthmore Feed Co. treated 
1 hem to a chicken dinner and to a tour of the research laboratories, mills, 
and experimental farm. Pretty lucky! 



is 



November 20, 1947— 

The Trade School carpenters arc busy getting ready to build a house, 

a Garrison Colonial type, for Wallace Driscoll on Ralph Talbot Street, 

South Weymouth. The boys will have some cold days to work, because the 

temperature has already begun to drop. 
November 28. 1947- 

Dear Diary, 

Thanksgiving recess is over and back to school again! The big football 
game last rhursday— Weymouth versus Hingham. The score Weymouth 27. 
Hingham 0. Can't beat that! The lootball team under Harry Arlanson did 
exceedingly well this season, having lost only two games. 
December 5, 1947— 
Dear Diary, 

W hat luck! A day oft lor us in the lower classes, it's a big day though tor 
the upper classmen, Career Day. Miss Nye and Mr. Gutterson have arranged 
a program consisting ol twenty-six occupational group conferences. Each 
student had an opportunity to attend at least two conferences. Sixty-six men 
and women from business, industry, and the professions took part and 
discussed their work. We are looking forward to participation next year. 

December 15. 1947— 
Dear Diary, 

Today Miss PetrUcci presented a Christinas play in which students from 
all classes took part. What hidden talents are here in Weymouth High! 

January 1, 1948— 
Dear Diary, 

New Year's Resolutions— 

1. We will do our home work every night! 

2. We will not skip school! 

3. We will be good boys and girls! 

January 5, 1948— 
Dear Diary, 

We should like to entrust to you, "Dear Diary," our New Year's reso- 
lutions. We will try ever so hard to keep them throughout 1918 and hope 
you won't be too strict in judging us. 

January 12, 1948— 
Dear Diary, 

The Spelling Bee Finals were held today, in which Billy Hughes was the 
winner. We have many good spellers among our classmates. 

February 28, 1949— 
Dear Diary, 

Ranks are out, but our resolutions seem not to have had much effect. 
We tried very hard, but there are no noticeable changes. 

March 15, 1 948— 
Dear Diary, 

The Sheet Metal Department started work on the heating system in Mr. 
DriscoH's new house. The house has really progressed: the entire job is 
under Mr. Clark's expert guidance and teaching. 

April 16, 1918- 
Dear Diary, 

In the cabinet shop, the Sheet-Metal Department completed the blower 
system lor removing sawdust from the machinery. This was one of the 
largest projects ever attempted by a high school. It received great comment 
from outside sources.

April 30, 1948- 
Dear Diary, 

Those lucky "Aggie" boys got out of classroom duties today to go to work 
on farms for the summer. They seem to get all the breaks! Oh, well, it isn't 
loo much longer before we all shall leave lor the summer vacation. 
May 22, 1948- 
Dear Diary, 

The Band, Orchestra, and Choir came back from Hampton Beach, New 
Hampshire today. Despite the rainy, cold weather, the} returned with an 
"A" rating. A little rain doesn't stop us hard) New Englanders. 
May 30, 1948- 
Dear Diary, 

Cheerleaders were chosen today: Nanev Morris. Marie Severe, and Phyllis 
Lyden. We Eeel most proud to have members <>l the sophomore <lass among 
them. 

June 24, 1948- 
Dear Diary, 

S-w-i-s-h, out the Iront door. We're off for our summer vacations. We'll 
see you in the fall. 

JUNIOR YEAR 

September 8, 1948- 
Dear Dian . 

It's the half-way mark, juniors, to be exact. 

We had a wonderful surprise waiting lor us. All the rooms are painted in 
attractive pastel colors, making the surroundings more conducive lor stud) 
(obviously of little use lor some). There are new laboratories on the third 
Moor, the librar) is moved to the second Moot, and all typewriting looms arc- 
changed to the first floor. 
.September 21, 1948- 
Dear Diary, 

We're in the swing ol the football season with rallies led by our peppy 
cheerleaders. Many of our junior boys keep things moving on the football 
field, while others are preparing lor the winter track season. 
November 15, 1948— 
Dear Diai v . 

Girls, you would be wise to choose your husband from the members of the 
carpentry course in Trade School. They've had plenty ol experience in 
building houses. They've started on a second house —a "Cape Cod" for Mr. 
Thomas A. Lyons. |r. The house is located on Federal Street in Weymouth. 
The boys in the Sheet Metal Department are to install the heating system. 
December 5, 1918 
Dear Diary, 

What a wonderful time! The athletic teams certainly deserved that Vic- 
tory Dance. Everyone looked so different and attractive, all dressed up in 
his best clothes, especially the "fellars" with suits and ties. Among the 
guests was Mr. Dicker, the English Exchange' Teacher who came in Miss 
Mayo's place while she is in England. Mr. Dicker certainly finds our ways 
and customs quite different from those of the English. 
January 5, 1949— 
Dear Diary, 

Back again with man) resolutions for the new year. Nineteen forty-eight 
was a good year, but we expeel much to happen this year. 

Guess what! The "Aggie boys" have started a paper called the F. F. A. 
under the guidance of Bob Lincoln and Charlie Sundin. I guess the Reflec- 
tor will have some competition! Included in the "Aggie" news is the record 
of their basketball team, headed by the lady's man, Dick Delorey. 



20 



April 29, 1949 
Dear Diary, 

At last the Senior Prom arrived. Many oil us attended and everyone had 
an exciting time. The gym was turned into a ship with portholes and all 
kinds of nautical decorations. It took a long time for the seniors to plan for 
their prom, but the results were excellent. The music was supplied by 
Donovan's orchestra and everything went smoothly under the guiding hand 
of Miss Norris. We kept thinking one year from now we shall be having 
ours. It just doesn't seem possible. 

May 2, 1949 

Dear Diary, 

All the science classes held an open house in the laboratories on the third 
floor tonight. It was really astonishing to see what our school could do. The 
biolog) classes had a beautiful rock garden and waterfall which took weeks 
to prepare. The chemistry classes had various exhibits, in one of which the 
making of cosmetics was demonstrated. Of course, the physics classes had 
many ingenious motors and gadgets, really complicated, but interesting. 
The exhibit was a huge success, with plans already being formed for one 
next year. 

May 9, 1949- 
Dear Diary, 

We finally picked our class officers and everyone was certainly happv 
about the choice. Our president is Dick Russo: vice-president, Frank Boyle: 
secretary, Barbara Tukis; and treasurer, Dorothy Godfrey. There was plenty 
ol competition, but these are the lucky ones. 

May 13, 1949- 
Dear Diary, 

Tonight was our first party. What fun we had in preparing for it! 
Dorothy Godfrey and her committee did a marvelous job on the decorations, 
making the gym look like a circus, with clowns and all kinds of animals. 
Damn Shea's orchestra provided music, while several of our juniors took 
part in the entertainment. Of course, the boys liked the refreshments best 
of all. Many of the teachers attended, and it was fun to see them dancing 
and "cutting up" with the rest of us. For the first time, we were together 
with the members of the Vocational School. Our thanks to Miss Ghiorse, 
Miss Silvester, and all others who helped make our party a success. 

May 15, 1949- 
Dear Diary, 

Our baseball team is unusually successful this season, but really doesn't 
get the support that the success warrants. 

May 20, 1949- 
Dear Diary, 

We all lined up lor pictures today. No lipstick, no hair-combing, no 
straightening ol ties needed— only the removal of all metal (remember,

Dear Diary, 

We're back, blistered and burned to a crisp. If you turn us over, we'll crack. 
Our first experience with the sun this season certainly left us feeling slightly 
miserable. We feel that no record of our adventure at Old Silver Beach would 
be complete unless we recalled that certain members of our faculty took an 
unexpected dip. We wonder if Miss MacDougall and Miss Palmer will ever 
forget the Junior Outing. 

Bye-bye for the summer!

Joan Fairman Graham 




E, the graduating class of 15)50, an setting out to build our futures at a 
turning point in history— the middle ol die twentieth century. We have 
before us the task ol making the next filt\ years more profitable and more 
worthwhile than those that have just expired. It would be well for us to turn back 
the 1 pages of history and discover what progress has been made in certain fields. 

Let us consider aviation. Before the twentieth century, the airplanes, which 
we take lor granted today, were but a fantastic dream — but a dream that has 
become a reality. Men worked on the problem ol human Might lor uncounted 
centuries before achieving it. The first human Right on record occurred outside 
Paris in I 78.S in a hvchogen-filled balloon. Before that, men had tried to fly, but 
had failed. Leonardo da Vinci, and others like him, had designed and planned 
crafts with no success. During the nineteenth century, a vogue lor flapping-wing 
and balloon experiments grew up. A patent was issued in 1889 to one R. ]. 
Spanieling for wings to be fitted to the arms and legs ol man: and as late as 1930, 
the same idea was used in experiments. Men were so eager to discover the 
princ iples governing the air that they risked their very lives in innumerable ways. 

At the beginning ol the twentieth century, the culmination ol man's attempt 
to fly in a vehicle that was heavier than ail came when, in 1903, Wilbur and 
Orville Wright made the first Might, utilizing engine power and having a pilot at 
i he c ontrols . 

The machine Mew lor twelve seconds and travelled one hundred and twenty 
feet, l ine, that does not seem like such a great achievement to us. but at thai 
time it was almost a miracle. Later in the day. however, a strong gusl ol wind 
caught their Hhnsy machine, turned it over end. and damaged it badly, but the 
W right Brothers were satisfied— they had proved their theory. 

Even at that early date in the progresss ol aviation, there was no lack of 
competition. One of the Wright Brothers' rivals was Samuel Pierponi Langley. 
For seventeen years, he had aspired to construct an aircraft that would carry man. 
In his final effort to achieve success, he launched his aircraft from the top of a 
houseboat in the Potomac River. It had been launched unsuccessfully before, and 
this time. too. it crashed, carrying Langlev's dream ol conquest of the air with it. 

Building on the principles used by the Wright Brothers and others, the 
inventors in the years that followed advanced the airplane with progressive 
refinement, until, before the outbreak of World War I, speeds began to approach

SOCIAL SERVICE 

Sandra M. Stevens 




gociAL Service, which has as the ultimate goal the fullest possible develop- 
ment of individuals, deals with the art of living. This work aims to help 
people lead a richer life, although the aid is sometimes re! used In those who do 
not understand the purpose. 

In 1873. a society for rehabilitation made its appearance in Boston, the 
society now known as the "Community Workshop". Later a more complete 
organization was realized in the "Associated Charities Society", which rendered 
all types of service. 

As time brought us to the twentieth century, we found more interest being 
shown in this work. In the early 1920 s the word "charities" was omitted from the 
name and the service received the title of "Association of Improving Conditions 
of the Poor". During the years of 1929-1939, much help was provided those who 
were victims of the long Depression Period. Not until the early I940's was the 
standard "Family Service Society" formed and accepted. 

Contary to the former concept ol social work, which was thought to be onh 
lor the poverty-stricken, it has now fortunately been recognized as a necessity 
for all in modern living. For advancement. Social Service seems to insure the 
progressive swem that exists in America. One should realize that he has even 
right to make use of the numerous benefits offered in his community. Today, 
the various societies are making great ellorts to raise all standards of living- 
spiritual, moral, and intellectual. There is undeniable truth in what Ralph H. 
Blanchard, President ol the 1949 National Conference of Social Work, stated: 
"Not independence, but interdependence, is a key word among communities as 
well as among nations". 

The problems encountered in the held are many, but among those- ol greatest 
importance that demand increasing attention are Medical Care, Mental Health, 
and Family Service. An "extra-mural" program is now in operation at the 
Monteliore Hospital, New York, having been started in 1947. Under this plan, 
hospital care is administered at home; particularly the poor profit bv receiving 
expert medical treatment. Social work plays a major part in the successful ful- 
fillment of this home-care program: if favorable conditions ate established, the 
hospitals are relieved of many cases. In connection with this experimental pro- 
ject, social workers are encouraging the belief thai patients ofen recover in their 
own homes more quickly. Happiness lot the patient, the element essential foi 
a speech recovery, is often thus achieved.

American trade, for the principles oi International Law permitted the capture ol 
any vessel carrying contraband to a belligerenl or blockaded port. 

Since Greal Britain controlled the seas and forced all shipping into her ports 
to prevent any goods from reaching Germany, the Kaiser retaliated in 1915 l>\ 
announcing thai am vessel entering the so-called "war /one" around the British 
Isles would be sunk. The only means ol carrying out the threat was submarine 
warfare. The resulting loss ol human life as the Germans torpedoed our ship-, 
led to a series ol protests from President Wilson; and Congress, upon the recom- 
mendation of the President, declared war upon Germany. Thus the policv ol 
America led up to the successful terminal ion ol World War I. 

Alter victory, the United Slates, under the leadership ol President Wilson, 
began the Struggle lor a permanent peace. The League ol Nations was formed 
ai Paris providing lor the prevention of future wars, bul Wilson, though 
victorious in war, was defeated in peace as the Convcnant ol the League was 
rejected by the Senate. 

Without the active participation and support ol the United Stales, the 
League, as the years went by, proved unable to cope with the serious threats 
to world peace; this Inst attempt at world governmeni gradually lost its powci 
and prestige. 

After the inauguration ol Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Ifl.'l.'i. the United 
Slates took a new stand in foreign relations with South America, replacing 
our "Big Brother" policy l>\ the "Good Neighbor" policy. While in the- Orient, 
our relations with Japan became steadih worse, finally culminating in the 
successful prosecution ol another World War. 

In August 1941, President Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, Prime Minislet 
of England, met oil the coast ol Newfoundland to draw up the Atlantic Charter, 
the lust link in the chain that was destined to be the world's new peace 
organization, the United Nations. This doc nine tit, containing the principles 
ol freedom, was later to serve as a foundation for a better, peaceful world. 

At the end ol World War II, the United Nations was formed. Immediately, 
the hopes ol the whole world lose and (he new organization was looked upon 
as the final solution to world peace. Soviet Russia set up what Winston 
Churchill termed an "Iron Curtain.' maintaining complete isolation and con 
tinually blocking all attempts ol the United Nations to regulate such vital 
problems as the control of atomic power by her abuse of the ve to. 

Thus again the hopes ol the world lor an effective international government 
were stymied. Instead of the "One World" envisioned bv Wendell Wilkie, now 
in 1950 we have a world divided into two hostile camps, both ol which are torn 
and ravaged bv the "Cold War". 

What will be the eventual outcome, no one today would dare prophesy. In 
the words of Secretary ol State Acheson: "The United Stales is reach, as it has 
been and always will be, to co-operate in genuine efforts to find peaceful settle- 
ments. Our attitude is not indexible, our opinions are not frozen, our positions 
are not and will not be obstacles to peace. But it takes more than one to cooper 
ate . . . We are always ready to discuss, to negotiate, to agree . . . We want peace 
but not at anv price ..."

HIGH HONOR ESSAY 



THE FOREIGN 
POLICY OF THE 
UNITED STATES 



Marta Mapes 



JJPkom earliest history, foreign policies and foreign relations have played a vital 
role in the progress and development of countries of the world. The United 
States has been no exception. The infant nation, notwithstanding President 
Washington's best efforts to keep it aloof from foreign entanglements, soon be- 
came involved in world politics. 

In the first years of the young republic, our policy w as almost entirely one oJ 
isolation and neutrality, although, inevitably, because of interference with our 
foreign shipping, we were drawn into the War of 1812. Following the issuance oJ 
the Monroe Doctrine in 1823, however, we enjoyed three quarters of a century ol 
virtual freedom, alooi from the rest of the world. 

At the end of the nineteenth century, Secretary of State John Ha\, in co-op 
eration with President McKinley, changed our traditional policy, lor, although 
still continuing along the road of non-interference with European and Asiatic 
countries, we began to take a much closer interest in affairs ol the Western 
Hemisphere. Thus the United States began a new foreign policy which was based 
upon the expansion theory. 

Under this policy and as a result of the Spanish-American War, the United 
States became responsible for the welfare of Cuba, the Philippines, the Hawaiian 
Islands, and Guam. Suddenly it was realized that we were now faced with the 
problem of managing distant and heavily populated countries, whose ways and 
customs were \astly different from ours. 

With the opening of the twentieth century, although still maintaining the 
idea of isolation, the United States, now a growing world power, sent strong 
delegations to the Hague Conference in 1901. Undoubtedly, a few years before, 
America would not have participated in the meetings, declaring no interest in 
disarmament and European affairs. Now, because ol our world-power policy, we 
assisted in the setting up of a Court of Arbitration, before which nations were 
able to present disputes and obtain peaceful settlements. 

The over-all foreign policy of the American people has ever been based upon 
a love lor peace. All previous wars were fought in the hope that permanent peace 
would be possible. Therefore the United Slates, convinced that our intervention 
in Europe would do little good, tried her best to remain neutral in the trying 
years of 1914, 1915, and 1916. 

"Ibis neutrality was very difficult to maintain because ol interference with

one hundred miles per hour. Airplane flights thousands ol Eeel into the air 
became commonplace. During the years ol World War [, the histor) ol aviation 
became the history of military flying. Then, in l!)l!>. with the impetus to research 
given aeronautics by the war, there began fresh peacetime attempts to achieve 
new goals. Endurance records were made and broken. .Speeds went up and kept 
on gaining. Public consciousness was impressed with the value ol the airplane. 

World War II gave the same incentive lor constructing bigger and belter 
planes as did World War I. From ;t half-dozen aircraft plants that survived the 
termination of wartime contracts in 1918, the aircraft manufacturing industry in 
the wartime years of the 1910 s grew into a business, encompassing do/ens of huge 
factories which employed more persons than any other industry in the United 
States. Today, airplanes accomplish h ats that were undreamed of fifty years ago. 

Bui what ol the future? What pan will aviation play in the years that lie 
ahead? This "dream" of hall a century ago has become an integral part of our lives 
that will affect each and every one ol us: but we must not stop here— we must go 
on, and add to the progress made by those who have gone before us. We must 
make a place lor ourselves, not only in this field, but in main others. Although our 
task will be difficult, with God's help we can make the world a better place in 
which to live. We have no strength in ourselves: onh through faith and Hum in 
God can we accomplish anything really worthwhile. Ma\ we fulfil] the words ol 
the Prophet Isaiah: 

"Rut they that wail upon the Lord shall renew theii strength; they shall 
mount up with wings as eagles: they shall run and not be weary: and they shall 
walk, and not faint."

Toda) the general tendency sanctions the theory thai chronic diseases will 
multiply. As Margaret B. Ryder said at the 1949 Conference, "Medical science 
saves the chronicall) ill, bui societ) has noi yei solved the problem ol caring Eoi 
them." 

Social workers realize more and more the responsibility they undertake in 
nursing-home placement. Noi only will their decisions deepl) affeel the- content- 
menl ol the patient, but also the satisfaction of his family; lot, although a 
nursing-home is licensed, thai fact does noi always guarantee its worth. Social 
workers should noi merely assign a person to any home, bul should choose one 
particularly adapted to the individual needs. In order to insure proper treatmenl 
alter placement, the workers must keep in contact with the muses for the well- 
being ol i heir patients. 

Another serious problem in this field concerns the mentally sick. Following 
World War 1, social agencies discovered a new opening in their ever-broadening 
range-psychiatric work. These humanitarian societies found thai shell-shock 
was not always caused from physical breakdown. Again in World War II, social 
workers contributed their share to the war eflort by aiding the governmenl in 
elimination of those who were not material lor ac tual duty. That which resulted 
from tile latter was the personal guidance engaged to discern aptitudes and to 
find suitable positions. 

To cope with the urgent need of mental clinics, main partime clinics have 
been set up. As the majority of communities are loo small or .ire without 
sufficient funds lor a regular clinic, this scheme provides an adecpiate substitute. 

Family relationship also constitutes another phase ol social work. The 
survival ol the famil) depends greatly upon changes made to meet the various 
needs. The words of the late Ruth Benedict, lamed anthropologist, reflect the 
genuine belief of modern authorities, "Amidst all troubles, the family remains 
the most stable institution we have." It can be easily noticed that in the pre 
viousl) mentioned problems, home and family life act as the main ingredient in 
I he united living. To admit the truth is hard sometimes, but lor our future 
welfare we must acknowledge the fact that too much emphasis, placed upon 
gainful jobs and careers, has reduced the worth of homemaking. It is an art to 
be proud to accomplish. Formerly, the only Social Serice for the family in 
emergencies was the mutual aid of neighbors; with that as a beginning we have 
built up our present system. 

Perhaps, since many of us are not acquainted with the Family Service Socicu 
that was established in our town about eight years ago, it might be well to 
mention the splendid work being achieved. Such an agency, wholly supported 
by the Community Fund, has clone a great deal in the field of social welfare. 

No other statement can better describe that lor which we are striving than 
thai of the renowned American general and reformer, Carl Schurz, "Ideals are 
like the stars. We never reach them, but like the mariner ol the sea we guide 
our course by them". 

The first fifty years ol the twentieth century have passed. We have men- 
tioned main points of progress, trying to show the great advances made in the 
field ol Aviation, in our Foreign Policy, and in Social Service.

Football 



r jj~ l ni 1949 football team of the Weymouth High School had one ol the most 
successful seasons in the school's history. A ten-game, undefeated regular 
season, highlighted b\ defeats of such perennially strong Class "A" teams as 
Everett. Somen ille. and Brockton, earned the team the first post-season bowl 
game that any South Shore team has ever received. As a reward the team was 
sent on a testimonial trip to Washington, D. C. and Florida. 

At this time, the footbal squad would like to express gratitude to all those 
who made such an enjoyable trip possible.

and guidance throughout our school years. 

ITEM 2 — To Mr. Whittle, we leave an automatic push-button system to insure 
quiet passing between periods.

could lie forget it? 

/ TEM I— To Mr. Lyons, we leave an automatic slip-signer to help in the morning

ITEM 6 —To the Trade School faculty, we leave a new year, a new freshman c lass, 
fewer troubles and more courage. 

[TEM 7 —To Room 211. we leave a closet big enough for the coats of all the

more space in the future. 

ITEM 8 —To Room 212, we leave a green and red light lor each desk to indicate 
whether the pupil is present or absent. 

I TEM 9 —To Room 216, we leave an electric board-washer with a built-in eraser

the teacher. 

I TEM I 1 — To Room 218, we leave a pencil sharpener to eliminate ball-point

ITEM 12— To Room 224, we leave a record machine and a long-playing record 
to relieve the teacher in giving those often-repeated orders. 

ITEM I .H — To Room 807, we leave a high-powered mic rophone whic h is needed 
to get messages to the students, and a new-type ventilating machine to carr) 
those fumes back to the science lab where they belong. 

I TEM H — To Room .'!, we leave another back door, so that the students ma\ 
leave through whichever door they wish. 

ITEM 15— To the juniors, we leave the honor ol using our home rooms and the 
teachers to maintain order in them.

hardest homework assignment with the press of a button. 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, we have hereto subscribed our names, this 
June ol 1950.
